Senor Tito Rodriguez

LP (Item 50003) Tico, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+

An excellent little set from Tito – recorded in the late 50s for Tico, with a groove that's harder than much of his 60s work for United Artists! The lineup includes some nice jazzy vibes work on a few tracks – and the album includes the great percussive track "Suena Tu Bongo (Beat Your Bongo)", plus other nice ones like "Ritmo y Melodia", "Tom & Jerry", and "Asi Na Ma".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Light blue label Forum pressing. Cover has clear tape on the seams.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Let's Do The Bossa Nova!

Very cool album that has Tito leaving his more traditional Afro Cuban groove for a more Brazilian one. Tito and band do some nicely groovy versions of bossa standards and more obscure material – including "Otra Vez", "Doralice", "O Pato", "Un Abraco No ... LP, Vinyl record album

West Side Beat
United Artists, 1961. Very Good+
Ostensibly another West Side Story pop ripoff album, this is actually a strong album of Latin tracks that uses the popularity of the musical to draw a parallel with the "west side" grooves of the New York Latin scene. The album includes a small amount of covers from the musical, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good-
Original pressing of this late 50's effort by Tito Rodriguez. The record's got a good hard sound that's similar to some of his better RCA work, and which we like a lot more than his later recordings from the 60's. All cuts have vocals, and the band plays lots of short choppy Latin grooves. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, Early 70s. Very Good
A split album of work from La Lupe – with one side of dramatic pop numbers, and another side that hits a much more salsa-based bag! Given the range of Lupe's talents, the split here is no surprise – and the material on the pop side are mostly overblown ballads and love tunes that use ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ce Magnifique
Fania/Tico, 1980. Very Good+
This one's got kind of a campy cover, but it's a surprisingly great little set – not the Parisian-styled record you might expect from the title and image, but a crackling set of New York salsa played by Tito Puente with vocals by Azuquita! The French touches are a reference to the fact that ... LP, Vinyl record album
